The General Entertainment Authority of KSA, in association with Time Entertainment and Alchemy Project, presented one of the most impressive live-stag...e show masterpieces in the world in December 2017.
Created by famed dance company PILOBOLUS after years of experimentation with short-form shadow play, Shadowland is part shadow act, part dance, part circus, and part concert.
Conceived in collaboration with Steven Banks, the lead writer for 'SpongeBob SquarePants', and accompanied by an original rhythmic score from American musician David Poe, SHADOWLAND performed two unforgettable nights at Princess Norah University in Riyadh on December 28 and 29, 2017.
Shadowland, a creation by Pilobolus, merges modern dance with innovative multimedia techniques. Praised by European critics, it offers an experience that defies classification. The story unfolds as a teenage girl's dreams take her on a journey into Shadowland, exploring the strange and wonderful power of darkness. Founded in 1971, Pilobolus breaks down barriers between disciplines, engaging global audiences through performance and education. The creative team, led by Charter Artistic Directors Robby Barnett and Michael Tracy, along with collaborators like Steven Banks and David Poe, contributes to the unique magic of Shadowland. The talented dancers, including Shawn Fitzgerald Ahern and Heather Jeane Favretto, bring this extraordinary performance to life.
